I will apologize right up front for making a two-part project BUT I did not know I would be limited in the amount of pictures I could post. The last project I posted I forgot to take very many pictures so I know this time I wanted to share plenty of pictures. So that being said you will need to view both parts to see them all.
After having a tree cut down we were left with an ugly, large Stump in our front side yard. I have always wanted a Gnome Home so after looking at this stump for a year I decided to dive in. Since we also have a great huge oak tree in the front yard it seemed appropriate to make the Gnome's a neighbor in the Oak tree. So I decided to attach a fairy door. Now the hard part....waiting and looking to find just the right items for the job.... Imagine my surprise one day when I walked into a thrift store and found a Fairy Castle for what I assumed to be a Disney Doll. Knowing I only wanted the front door area I examined the dollhouse to make sure I could break it apart or disassemble the front.
Then as I walked down another aisle I found the perfect DOOR to attach to the front Oak Tree to become my Fairy door for the Gnome Home neighbors. I knew in my heart it was meant to be and time to start this project.
